"Guilty Pleasure" is a song by Croatian singer Mia Dimšić. The song is set to represent Croatia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin after winning the pre-selection competition Dora 2022.[1][2]

Background and release

"Guilty Pleasure" was one of fourteen songs commissioned by HRT for Dora 2022, Croatia's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.[3] The song was composed by Branimir Bačić, Vjekoslav Dimter and Dimšić herself.[4] "Guilty Pleasure" premiered on 10 February 2022, ten days ahead of Dora 2022, Croatia's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.[5] The song became available through digital retailers and streaming services on 20 February 2022 through Croatia Records.[6]

In an interview on RTL Danas, Dimšić cited Taylor Swift's 2020 albums Folklore and Evermore as inspirations for the song.[7] However, Dimšić was widely accused of plagiarizing Swift's 2020 single "Willow",[8] mostly by social media users, such as Twitter[9] and TikTok.[10][11] Dimšić denied the accusations in an interview with 24sata, but acknowledged the comparisons as a compliment since she is a great admirer of Swift.[12] On 25 February 2022, during an Otvoreni Radio interview, Dimšić performed a mashup of her and Swift's songs, dubbing it "Guilty Willow".[13] Following the plagiarism allegations, "Willow" entered Billboard's Croatia Songs chart at number nine on the issue dated 5 March 2022.[14][15]

On 21 March 2022, during a radio interview, Dimšić premiered the Croatian version of the song titled "Netko drugi" (Someone Else) on a local HR 2 radio show Music Pub Zlatka Turkalja.[16] The Croatian version was released on YouTube Music,[17] Deezer[18] and Apple Music[19] on 23 March 2022.

At Eurovision

National selection

On 27 October 2021, HRT opened a submission period for artists and composers to send their entries to the broadcaster until 25 November 2021, later extending the deadline until 12 December 2021.[20] On 17 December 2021, Dimšić was announced as one of the fourteen participants in Dora 2022 with the song "Guilty Pleasure".[3] On 24 January 2022, HRT hosted the running order allocation draw on the local TV show Kod Nas Doma with Branimir Mihaljević [hr] and Barbara Kolar as hosts.[21] "Guilty Pleasure" was drawn to be performed 14th.[22] In the final, held on 19 February 2022, she won the televote and jury vote, placing first with 257 points and thus earned the right to represent Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.[23]

In Turin

On 25 January 2022, an allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in.[24] Croatia has been placed into the first semi-final, to be held on 10 May 2022, and has been scheduled to perform in the second half of the show.[25]
